Bharatnatyam is the oldest dance form in India.
The Cultural Ministry of India has included Chhau in the list of classical dances that makes a total of 9 classical dance forms.
Kathakali is different from a similar-sounding Kathak, though both are Indian classical dance traditions of “story play” wherein the stories have been traditionally derived from the Hindu epics and the Puranas.
Lavani is a genre of music popular in Maharashtra, India. Lavani is a combination of traditional song and dance, which particularly performed to the beats of Dholki, a percussion instrument. Lavani is noted for its powerful rhythm.
